Four Seasons Resort Carmelo, Uruguay

Tradition meets modern chic. Acres of fragrant pine forest meet the sandy banks of the River Plate.

Arguably one of the River Plate’s most desirable, destination resorts. Beginning with the elegantly contemporary décor that borrows and reworks traditional themes - and going through to the exquisite spa and world class dining - Carmelo Resort will constantly delight you.

Think blue-tiled pool with stone surrounds and cool sun decks. Think a traditional hacienda-style restaurant with a central fountain. Think about playing on a superb golf course. Think about a resort set against a landscape of grassy plains, rolling vineyards and acres of pine and eucalyptus trees. Think about being perfectly pampered, and you’re imagining yourself at Carmelo’s Four Seasons.
